THE Sunshine Coast Business Awards are back in 2021 and will be a celebration like no other this year, following one of the most challenging business years in living memory.
While the region has fared better than most, the COVID-19 pandemic definitely took its toll on many businesses, including causing the cancellation of the 2020 awards.
But the region’s most prestigious awards are back and will be officially launched at the Small Business Month Breakfast on Thursday 20th May 2021.
Sunshine Coast Business Awards chair Jennifer Swaine said this year’s Awards, powered by local energy provider LPE, were an important opportunity to recognise excellence in business from across the region’s many different industries.
“COVID-19 has created challenges for most businesses, and this year it’s time to celebrate everyone’s successes whether it be responding and adapting as a result of the pandemic, or simply maintaining and growing their business in one of the most challenging business and economic environments in living memory,” Mrs Swaine said.
